 Autism Acceptance Month Activities

April is Autism Acceptance Month! During Autism Acceptance Month, we focus on sharing positive, respectful, and accurate information about autism and autistic people. We invite you to visit the official Autism Acceptance Month website ( hosted by our partners at the Autistic Self Advocacy Network (ASAN). This website serves as a central location for posting and sharing information about autism acceptance-themed events occurring across the United States for the entire month.

AMCHP will update this page with information on activities in states, communities, and the national level to promote acceptance. Please be sure to check this page frequently for updates.

Follow us on Facebook and Twitter for Autism Acceptance related posts throughout the month!


    SPHARC is excited to be hosting a series of four coffee talks at 2:00pm EST every Wednesday in April. More information regarding the coffee talks can be found below!
